Celebrity weddings are about gorgeous pictures, lavish decoration and intricately embellished clothes. However, there were some Bollywood couples who chose to get married in secret and stun the world with their announcement. Let us take a look at their stories!
Amrita Rao - RJ Anmol
When Amrita and Anmol appeared on Couple Of Things, a show on YouTube, they revealed that the two had a secret wedding in 2014, and they announced it in 2016. The actress was worried about getting married early and how the news could hamper her career. Therefore, they chose the secret path and got married in the presence of just family members.
Speaking about the impact of social media, the actress said, “Today, there is social media to put your thoughts across, but it wasn’t so common back then. It was very easy for people to spread rumours that she is married now, there won’t be any fan following now, all those kinds of things. So, thinking that, I didn’t want to take the step of getting married.”
Hema Malini - Dharmendra

The couple tied the knot in 1980. Before they got married, there was not a Bollywood fan who did not know the two names. Hema Malini was the Dream Girl, while Dharmendra ranked among the top of the list of heroes of that time. The two have worked on many films together.
According to several media reports, both the actors converted to Islam because Prakash Kaur, Dharmendra’s first wife, refused to divorce him. The reports also suggested the two went against the will of their families to convert into another religion and marry each other. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Hema Malini said, “The best thing was that he (Dharmendra) never stopped me from working.”
Sridevi - Boney Kapoor
If the old media reports are believed to be true, the news of Sridevi’s pregnancy had spread through the country like a fire in a jungle. Soon, people started accusing her of breaking into a home. In 1996, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor tied the knot in a temple. A report in BollywoodShaadis also suggests that the late actress ensured that her husband had broken ties with Mona Kapoor, his first wife and their two kids.
Mona died in 2012, and Sridevi breathed her last breath in 2018. Boney Kapoor and Sridevi had two daughters - Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. Many controversies were published in the past.
